Howard Stern

He's Got Talent!

Dare we say ... we told you so Howard Stern just signed on with "America's Got Talent."

The King of All Media will replace Piers Morgan, much to the chagrin of those folks at the Parents Television Council, which felt he was too raunchy for primetime.

And producers wanted Stern so bad, they've even agreed to move 'AGT' to NYC -- so Howard can continue working on his radio show.

Fact is ... as we've been saying, Stern is a smart dude who knows his audience and when he should push the limits.

Bottom line -- AGT could become the biggest show on TV.

update_bar
6:32 AM PST -- Howie Mandel is fired up about his new co-star ... telling TMZ, "I couldn't be happier. As my Mom always says, you can never have enough Howies."

Howard Stern won't last past 1 season. He is FARRRR to self-centered to have a show where he is not the only judge.

This guy jumped the shark years ago. The guy is a no talent hack who desperately wants to be relevant.

He's SO not raunchy! If you listen to his show, you know strippers and porn stars are probably 1% of the content, the rest being astoundingly insightful interviews, comedy bits, and real talk. He's no raunchier than the way any actual adult talks when they're not around children, it's just real life. I've never watched AGT before, but I will now.

This guy and his cast of misfits can be a real pig. He should do really well on this faux reality show.

Harvey, you're an idiot! "Every 1 that boycotts, 20 more will come" to see that sc*mbag?!?! BS!!! It's just like your lawyer BS about Scottie Pippen not having a case when celebs sue all the time for libel, such as Tom Cruise suing a tabloid for saying he's gay or Pitt and Jolie suing a British tabloid for saying they are divorcing. None of those cases are really detrimental to their income, but yet they will all get money because they lied about them.
